During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com discussed Paige becoming the Smackdown General Manager. Here is what he said courtesy of StillRealToUs.com:
“On Monday Paige did her retirement promo and in her promo, she pretty much said you’re not gonna see me again. Like I’m outa here. Then the next day she was the SmackDown GM. That decision was made on Tuesday. It was a very, very last minute decision.”
“They decided on Tuesday she was gonna be the SmackDown GM,” Alvarez continued. “So that should tell you everything you need to know about the Superstar Shake-Up. They will be switching people on Monday and then they’ll decide who they wanna switch on Tuesday. I’m sure they’ve got some ideas about who’s going where right now. But nothing is official until they’ve been drafted one way or the other.”
Dave Meltzer also noted on Twitter that it was Vince McMahon's call to make Paige the new General Manager of Smackdown Live.
